No, no, I did not sneeze or get something stuck in my throat; that is indeed the name of Natalie’s three-week-old son with fiancé Benjamin Millepied: Aleph. Pronounced ah-lef, Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, much like alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. It also means “leader” or “one who got stuck with a Hebrew letter for a name.”
